Re: Collector current design point for Q911+Q912? #ubitx #v6

Evan, I know that the value is shown as 470pf, but have you measured it in on the board, in the circuit, by any chance?
Like I said earlier, I measured it at 12nf. Someone posted that he changed the value to .01uf (10nf) and his power went up... I too have the low power syndrome with my V6. My v4 kicks butt at over 18 watts on 80 and 11 watts on 40. My V6 on 80 is 6 watts and 4 watts on 40. I don't recall the power on the higher bands.
Trying to figure out what is different in the power chain to cause such a big difference between versions.
Thanks for responding.

Can someone check the capacitance of c81 in circuit and see what value you get. I get when I go across that particular cap. Far from 470pf but then again there is other circuitry to mess with the LC meter.

C81 is 470pF in both the v4 and v5 boards that I have.
